Ryan Reynolds is close to inking a deal to voice the lead role in DreamWorks Animation's Turbo. The film is being directed by David Soren (Merry Madagascar) from a script he co-wrote with Darren Lemke (Shrek Forever After). Turbo's story follows "an ordinary garden snail who dreams of becoming the fastest snail in the world. When a freak accident gives him extraordinary speed, Turbo sets out to try to make his dream come true."
Lisa Stewart (Monsters vs. Aliens) is producing the film, which is slated for release on June 7, 2013. This deal will mark the second film that Reynolds has worked on with the studio. He also lent his voice to Chris Sanders' adventure comedy The Croods, which DWA will open on March 1, 2013, three months prior to Turbo.
I am looking forward to seeing Reynolds in The Green Lantern and think he's a great actor. Turbo sounds like a cute film. What are your thoughts on this news?
